look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
12oz. bottle poured into a curved pint glass
A- Color and clarity are very nice. Amber with orange and ruby highlights. The head is disappointing, and dissipates quite quickly. No real lacing.
S- Cinnamon, Nutmeg, a touch of brown sugar sweetness, and some lager yeast. Smelly pretty good actually.
T- The crispness of the lager yeast really kind of kills the complexity of the brew. It really mutes the pumkin flavor (even though pumkin isn't a huge flavor) but especially the spices. It ends up tasting like a mediocre octoberfest with some spices thrown in to make it unique. Aftertaste is kind of sour with the interplay between the lager yeast and spices. Weird.
M- Medium to high cabonation, slightly slick which is attributable to the pumpkin and finishes pleasently dry.
O- If only it tasted as good as it smells. Overall, not bad though.
